Vitacost - Smart Basics Pregnenolone -- 10 mg - 180 Capsules

Supports the production of hormones.*. What is pregnenolone? Pregnenolone is a naturally occurring metabolite produced primarily in the adrenal glands and central nervous system. It’s synthesized from cholesterol and functions as a precursor for the cascade of events from which all other sex hormones such as progesterone estrogen and DHEA are made. Pregnenolone is found in larger quantities in the brain and cranial nerves than any of the sex compounds. Animal studies provide information showing the correlation between cognitive performance and the cerebral concentration of pregnenolone sulfate.* . With age the amount of pregnenolone synthesized in the body decreases. Around age 75 it’s believed to be reduced by as much as 60 percent (from the normal amount present at age 35). How does pregnenolone support health? Supports the body’s pool of available material for hormone production.*. Promotes mental energy and reduces mental fatigue in highly motivated people under stress.*. Supports healthy brain function.*. Why choose Vitacost Pregnenolone? Supplies 10 mg of pregnenolone per single-capsule serving. Each bottle contains 180 servings. Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.  . *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease.

Great product

"I've been taking this for years. My doctor recommended it and Vitacost carries this product for less money and always has it in stock. When I first started buying this product at a vitamin store they either didn't have it in stock (had to order it) or not the right mg. Vitacost is great!"
